Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

I haven't  participated in this meme very often.   Don't know why; Mrs. 4444 is one of my favorite people to read...especially when she has videos in her posts!

*  The other day I saw this little guy/girl in the yard.  I think this is one of the baby bunnies that was born around Easter.
*  I spent 4 hours cleaning up YS' room on Wednesday.  I took advantage of his being away at band camp to clean up the pig sty room.  Hopefully it will stay this way for a while.

*  MS came in with a new friend on Wednesday.
He made a make-shift terrarium for it, but then decided to let it go at the end of the day.  Here he is in his new home:

* On Tuesday, I met the other mom who chaperoned band camp for the last 2 years with me. We met at McAlister's, and, 3 hours later, decided we'd best be on our way.  I think we talked about everything under the sun...we had to get our usual week's worth of talking into a few hours!

* Yesterday I gave my oven a little TLC.  I researched online how to get the racks clean, decided the easiest way was the "trash bag method":  Put the racks on trash bags outside, spray them with oven cleaner, wait 20 minutes, then rinsed them off.  I did have to do a little bit of scrubbing, but it was pretty easy.  While I was researching that, I happened to find a suggesting for getting the oven window clean:  using glass top stove cleaner.  Worked like a charm.  My oven looks almost like new, and I didn't have to do too much work.  Gotta love that!

* YS comes home from band camp today.  Gosh, I've missed that boy a lot more than I thought I would!  I can't wait to hear all the band camp stories (once a band geek, always a band geek!).  They will show off their hard work to parents tonight, followed by a pot-luck dinner, then the kids will be off to a local pool for a party.  I fully expect YS to sleep most of the day tomorrow!

  1. Lindsay is counting down the days to band camp too!!!!
    Love the lil' frog!
    My oven is a mess. Our a/c is only working part time (like me) and I have a 'self cleaning' oven...to do that it heats up the whole house though. SO the mess stays. I love the tips on the door/window and racks though; thanks Heloise.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Last summer we had toads all over the driveway every night, and I loved it. Wonder why not this year...?

    My husband is Mr. Clean, and he does self clean on our oven way too much. Way. Too. Much.

    Sigh.

  3. It's funny, but we don't have too many rabbits around here. There are some, but I didn't really think about it until someone mentioned that there are too many predators around here. Strange.

  5. Band camp is still a month away for my daughter, but she is waiting with baited breath. We have to get through the wisdom teeth extraction first ...

    And I hate cleaning ovens. I will clean anything but ovens happily ... but of course you have to clean it sooner or later, and then ... well, you know.

  7. Teeny tiny frog!!! So adorable :-)

    My oven is sadly neglected, but when I do get around to dealing with it I will be using that trash bag hint.
